    Re: Widener University School of Law (Full ABA)

    Widener University School of Law is the ABA accredited law school of Widener University. The school, founded in 1971 as the Delaware Law School, operates on two of Widener's campuses, one in Wilmington, Delaware, and the other in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Originally founded in 1971 as the Delaware Law School, the institution became affiliated with Widener University in 1975 and graduated its first class of 267 that year. The school's name was officially changed to Widener University School of Law in 1989 when the Harrisburg campus was added.

    Study abroad

    Study abroad is offered through the Summer International Law Institute. There are four institutes available to students; Kenya, Switzerland, Italy, and Australia. While abroad students sometimes have the ability to go out on internships with international organizations.


    Juris Doctor degrees are available through both the Delaware and Harrisburg campuses either full time or part time. Also available are specialty degrees varying per location. Available at the Delaware campus is the JD/MBA in Law and Business Administration and the J.D./Psy.D. in Law and Psychology. The Harrisburg campus has the J.D./M.S.L.S. program that allows students the opportunity to get both a Juris Doctor degree and a Masters in Library Science through a partnership with Clarion University. Graduate degrees via the Delaware campus include Master of Laws in Corporate Law and Finance (LL.M.), Master of Laws in Health Law (LL.M.), Master of Health Administration (M.H.A.), Master of Jurisprudence in Health Law (M.J.), Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.), and Doctor of Laws (D.L.). The graduate Health Law program has been ranked by the 2009 U.S. News & World report as one of the top ten graduate school programs in the nation.


    A legal education at Widener Law stands on three pillars—demanding academic programs that bring out the best in our students, a faculty of respected legal scholars and practitioners who are dedicated to teaching, and a focus on experiential learning that ensures our graduates understand how to apply the law as well as how to think about it.

    Widener Law’s nationally recognized legal institutes and centers shape policy and theory in a number of legal fields and offer certificate programs. Part think-tank, part boot camp, these institutes give you the opportunity to tailor your legal education to your professional goals. You can further enhance your education by studying abroad or participating in pro bono or other public interest opportunities.

    No matter what path your education takes, you can choose from two great campuses—one in Delaware, the other in Harrisburg. Each campus is committed to providing a challenging, practice-based legal education with a wide range of research, externship, networking, and career development resources. And each offers extraordinary opportunities unique to its location.
